Plasticizers

Myriant's bio-succinic acid can be formulated into plasticizers that produce flexible PVC with mechanical properties similar to those produced by DOA. Bio-succinic acid can be used to produce plasticizers that are phthalate-free, with higher renewability content than traditional adipate plasticizers.

Plasticizers made with bio-succinic acid demonstrate low temperature flexibility and migration similar to DOA. They can be useful as a secondary plasticizer with DOP.
